When a vanpool group first forms, they have a group meeting to establish their vanpool group guidelines. These may cover policies for radio control, eating and drinking inside the van, tardiness and side trips such as a coffee stop in the morning. Coordinators are to provide new riders a handout on the group's guidelines when a new rider joins the group. The group may revise their rules as the vanpool remains on the road and new riders join.
